Elbow Cay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6). Great beaches by House.

'Slow down, you're in Hopetown'! That is the mantra that awaits you as you enter the harbor. Hopetown is a lovely historic retreat, where islanders and guests mingle together at a slower pace of life.

Founded in 1785, Hopetown is clearly the most scenic settlement in the Bahamas. The harbour and its famous lighthouse, which must be toured, are stunningly beautiful. The quaint, vibrant-colored houses reflect simpler days. Motorized vehicles are restricted from town, so the streets are quiet and a pleasure to walk. There are excellent restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, a museum, and interesting gift shops.

A visit to this island is unlike any other perception or past trip that you've had to the Bahamas. Although their main industry is tourism, you will not experience any large destination resort high-rises, motorized traffic is limited, and the town's people make you feel like a local the minute you set foot in town!

The house is within a few minutes to either the Atlantic Ocean for surfing or boogie boarding or the Sea of Abaco, which is excellent for small children who aren’t ready for the waves!

Keywords: Enjoy a relaxing getaway in this beautiful Colonial Style house. Located at the lovely North End of Elbow Cay and surrounded by great garden with lush tropical plants, Windover offers complete seclusion for those looking to get away from it all and has great decks for relaxing or entertaining. Beaches right by the house and the quaint town of Hope Town minutes away with great shops and restaurants. Use of public dock. Also use of owner electric golf cart!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at this absolutely perfect home. The entire experience was picture perfect. The owner made the entire booking process so easy. The property was beautiful, gardens kept up and the gardener worked tirelessly keeping the grounds in tip top shape. Justin, the caretaker was there to meet us at the North End dock and was very helpful during our stay. The beach was so close, as was the dock. Even the neighbors were so friendly! Loved the North End and so appreciated the golf cart. We were very happy to have chosen this property. We had everything we needed to enjoy our trip to Hopetown and thank the owners for the supplies to get us started. I would highly recommend Windover for a beautiful, peaceful and well taken care of property providing the perfect vacation. It was everything and more!

Love the North End! Quiet Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate home! Our vacation was fantastic. The caretaker met us at the dock. He proceeded to answer all of our questions and helped us get settled. "Gotta love Tillie and her den!"

Really, the vacation began once we hoped off the ferry.

Ideal location-just a stroll away from Nathan's Bay. The owners are wonderful to work with! We've stayed at this property before and will return. It's simply its wonderful.

Wonderful and perfect

  • 5 of 5

I promise you you'll never want to leave. This is an ideal home, location, and island. My wife and two kids, four and seven, spent 8 nights there. The island of Elbow Key is long and thin, and the house has easy walking access (like 2 minutes) to the wavy Atlantic side or the calm and flat Nathan's cove on the mainland side. Or you can rent a boat and dock at the North End dock, which is practically next to the house, too. I hear there are many adventures that await those who get a boat. There are a number of nice restaurants on the island which serve most of the same things: fish, conch, chicken, all nice and casual. Make sure you hit "On Da Beach" for a drink and a fish melt. Hit Vernon's grocery at about 4:00 when his brother comes in with the day's fresh snapper and grouper catch (but not on windy days).

Shop in Marsh Harbour before you get there.

No laundry facilities available to renters :(

The slow internet speed will make you realize it's probably best to put put your stupid phone down, anyway.

Oh, and don't book it for the week we'll be there ;)

Now where can I find some Kalick?

Again, wildly happy with Abaco Windover

  • 4 of 5

My family, all adults, now ages from 33 to 69, have just returned from our 10th stay on Elbow Cay. Been in a few different cottages, but the last 6-7 visits have been at Abaco Windover. We meet 2 or 3 families for a joint vacation so we have seen their cottages also. Some have a better view, but on balance and with all things considered, Abaco Windover is our clear favorite.

Don't think twice!

  • 5 of 5

Ok- here it is. Don't think twice. This is from a Hopetown veteran.

Wonderful property and grounds, nicely furnished and very comfortable.

PLUS the two full round the home porches on both floors are fantastic.

GREAT layout of home for three couples or a family. AND I know the big

question is should I spend the big bucks and be right on the water?

The value proposition does not equate. As you are just a few minute walk from

the beach or a minute golf cart ride. So chop chop. Get the booking made.

AND before you book a home BOOK a boat. Because a boat puts your Hometown

vacation in steroids and the dock is just minutes away from Sarah;s lovely home.
